Colombian broadcaster Caracol has launched its international channel on US Hispanic pay TV operator DishLATINO.
Caracol Internacional, which targets Spanish-speaking US Latinos and Colombians, plays series such as news programme Noticias Caracol, variety show Sábados Felices and reality series Desafío.
The channel will be available on DishLATINO’s Plus, Dos and Max packages, plus the Latino Bonus Pack, a service that adds Spanish-language programmingwith Dish’s English-language packages.
“With approximately one million Colombians living in the United States, more than any other South American country, the addition of Caracol Internacional is both a natural programming fit and a way to further reach this growing audience,” said Alfredo Rodriguez, vice president, DishLATINO.
“Adding popular, country-specific programming helps connect Latino consumers living in the U.S. with their roots.”
